learned in the 1990s when bill clinton was president nothing shrinking the deficit faster than a growing economy that creates good, middle class jobs. that should be our driving focus, making america a magnet for good jobs, equipping our people with the skills required to fill those jobs, making sure their hard work leads to a decent living. those are the things we should be pushing our sefs to think about and work on every single day. that's what the american people expect. that's what i'm going to work on every single day to help deliver. so i need everybody who is watching today to understand you got a few days, congress can do the right thing, we can avert just one more washington manufactured problem that slows our recovery and bring down our deficits in a balanced, responsible way. that's my goal, that's what would do right by these first responders, that's what would do right byamerica's middle class. that's what i'm going to be working on and fighting for, not just over the next few weeks but over the next few years. thanks very much, everybody. thank you guys for your service. >
